YOGA

Morning And Evening Yoga

Enjoy yoga sessions with a stunning view of the Canadian snow-capped Monashee Mountains, or drift away into savasana while the snow silently falls just outside the window. 

Morning yoga classes include: Hatha, which will leave you feeling energized and warmed up.  Evening classes include a more restorative yoga style such as Yin, to help ease muscles and induce a state of stillness to calm and balance the mind.

Classes are suitable for all levels of yoga, from beginners who are new to yoga, to those that have been practicing for years.

SKIING / BOARDING

Skiing/Boarding

If a dose of fresh mountain air and alpine adventure is what your body is calling for, then skiing/boarding therapy is the prescription for you!  Whether you are an avid skier/boarder, or excited to learn something new, Big White has the terrain for all skill levels.  

Clip your skis or board on at the front door of The Timbers Chalet, and within minutes you'll find yourself in fresh 'champagne powder', which can only be found in the Interior of BC.

Chairlift lines are short, the skiing is magical, and the friendly small village atmosphere makes Big White a welcoming and relaxed place to release everyday tensions and stress.

If you are interested in learning to ski/board, we can arrange group or private lessons on your behalf.

NUTRITION

Nutritionally Balanced Meals

Recharge your body and feel your energy increase throughout the retreat with nutritionally balanced  meals that are planned and prepared by a holistic nutritionist. Meals focus on improving digestion to help increase nutrient absorption and stimulate regeneration.

Nutrition Education

We want you to continue to strengthen your health after the retreat, which is why we offer 2 complimentary nutrition education sessions.  Topics include:

'Improve Digestion to Improve Health'

Dive deeper into digestive disorders and learn how to improve common symptoms such as bloating, acid reflux, constipation, poor nutrient absorption, and leaky gut.  Learn why improving digestion is key to improving your health.

 

'Adrenal Fatigue - A Modern Society Illness'

In today's society the majority of people work far too much, sleep far too little, and feel enormous pressure to keep up with the ever-growing demands of life.  This leads to burn out, exhaustion, increased mental illness and eventually Adrenal Fatigue.  Learn the anatomy of Adrenal Fatigue, how to prevent it from occurring, and how to nutritionally and mentally support your body back to health if you are in a state of Adrenal Fatigue.
